How to successfully learn ?
Training is important to succeed at your job or grow in your career? Before getting started, remember to use a blended approach.
Active Learning such as paid or free online courses (check our subtopic tags for suggestions), physical classes, reading case studies or books about will of course be useful, but not sufficient to fully master the skill and retain it in the long run. Active Learning such as online elearning classes are usually a good start, but remember they represent only 10% of your overall learning journey.
People learn better when interacting with peers, we are wired that way. Your development plan should feature Social Learning, which can be achieved internally at your company through reviews, mentoring or coaching, but can also be done externally through peer exchanges or networking. Check our development plans for examples.
Also consider putting your skills into practice, this is 70% of the learning! Discuss with your manager or colleagues ways to work on individual or group projects where you could be using , we call those Stretch assignments. If you are what those projects could look like, you can look at our position development plans for examples.
Good luck on your journey to learn .
